Anibal Sanchez feels good Wednesday, set for bullpen Thursday
by R.J. White |

Tigers pitcher Anibal Sanchez felt good Wednesday after throwing a bullpen session the prior day, reports. He's set to throw another session Thursday.

"We've just got to wait and see what happens," manager Brad Ausmus said. "He's got a bullpen tomorrow. If he comes out of that all right, we'll have to schedule a simulated game."

The simulated game, which could come as early as Sunday morning, could be the precursor to getting Sanchez on the mound in a game before the season is over. He could start the team's penultimate game of the season next weekend if the Tigers were to have the division title wrapped up, though he would likely pitch just a few innings.
